Default Very nice ...

looking engine, but you might want to reconsider that DUI (GM based) distributor. It will never look right under a ford hood. You could sell it and go with a Ford Dura Spark electronic unit (about $65 rebuilt from NAPA). I've used those DUI units in the past and haven't been very impressed. Mike

Nice looking engine. Your intake seems to sit a bit better than mine does.

If you haven't run the engine yet, do the cam break-in without the new headers; use the old manifolds off your 352, or your new headers may end up looking pretty ugly. The exhause temps tend to get pretty high during the cam break in.

I also burned quite a bit of paint off the exhause flanges during the break in, so don't be too concerned with some discoloration there.
